The Cricket in Times Square

by George Selden

Careful illustrations, lyrical prose and an engaging plot fuse in this much beloved tale of a cricket, who, with his hodge-podge assortment of friends use creativity and hard work to save the nearly bankrupt newsstand in Times Square. Whimsical, comedic with a sometimes-gritty look at city life, friendship, courage and determination triumph in this Newbery Honor Book.
